–    Tours planned for Moco Moco Falls and Black RockIn Modern days the Rupununi has been heralded for its pristine beauty andWild-bull riding at a previous Rupununi Rodeorecognized as one of the most biologically diverse regions on earth. But before conservationists and eco-tourists trekked along these red road trails,Cheap NFL Jerseys, this land that is home to Makanaimas children: the Macushi in the North and the Wapishana in the South imbedded in its heart a love for the unique cattle culture that was once its mainstay.Cattle were first brought to the region in the 1860’s by the Dutch trader De Rooji who established the first homestead at Dadanawa in the South Rupununi. By the end of the 19th Century he was succeeded by such notables as the Scotsman H. P. C. Melville and later joined in the 1920’s by Tiny McTurk (of Karanambu fame) in the north. In a boom that lasted almost 50 years from the 1920’s to the mid 1970’s ranching saw its heyday and from the panoramic vistas in the south savannahs to the bush islands of the north this was a land dominated by cattle and the men who worked it; here the land was worked by native Amerindians, gentlemen, rogues and vagabonds alike who carved out for themselves and communities a living steeped in a unique blend of Amerindian,Cheap Jerseys China, Brazilian and English traditions.

In scenes evocative of the Wild West, male and female vaqueros in plaid shirts and cowboy hats display their mastery of the lasso and mount, you may even be lucky enough to spot one of the old-time saddles: with only toe stirrups they can only be ridden barefoot.With Brazil just minutes away many visitors will capitalize on the opportunity to ‘pop’ across the border for a taste of the Latin culture or a mini shopping spree choosing from among the many community crafts and produce on offer in the booths that ring the rodeo grounds. And,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, as the weekend winds on everyone looking for a reprieve from the heat will find their way to the nearby village of MocoA boy stands near to a giant anthillMoco village for a soak at the falls.This year, with the support of VSO-Guyana, the KMCRG (Kanuku Mountians Community Representatives Group),Cheap Jerseys, and the tourism project at Yupukari Village, Moco Moco has been preparing to welcome this year’s influx of visitors to the community and to introduce them to their latest tourism package- 999 Steps, Black Rock and Moco Moco Falls.The trip from Lethem to Moco Moco is under 30 minutes and along the way visitors can enjoy spectacular views of the Kanuku Mountains. A stop to wonder among the masses of termite mounds can be captivating as you imagine the thousands of tiny workers whose never-ceasing labours have produced these imposing natural structures. Growing as much as 6 inches in a year,wholesale jerseys, the mounts easily reach the height of a full-grown man.Keep your eyes peeled and you might just spot the Moco Moco plant from which the community gets its name or if you are really lucky, a giant anteater stalking the mounds for her favourite snack.

From here you can observe the vast savannahs and Kanuku mountains from above or look across for a spot of majestic Black Rock. This is a spot to relax, sit and take in the view and enjoy the snacks that you have brought with you. Later you can return to the base of the falls to enjoy your lunch and swim in one of the pools of crisp fresh water.For many this is the highlight of a trip to ‘Rodeo’, the excitement of the sport and cares of normal life washed away by Moco Moco’s unspoiled beauty and fast rushing waters. And though it may feel like you could stay there forever you can still be back in Lethem in no time, to enjoy the after party or the luxury of a comfortable bed in one of the many hotels that Lethem now offers.
